Critters and A Day Along the Water

One day or day one. You decide.

As for the Corona Virus I pray this rush to bring the economy back doesn't cause an even higher escalation of cases. I fear if we push for businesses to reopen in America (without proper testing and total precautions practiced by all) we're headed for disaster. We must apply common sense. 

"The best lightning rod for your protection 
is your own spine."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"One person with passion is better than
forty people merely interested."
E. M. Forster

My daughter's a mother but also a fur baby mama, here with her pup and the kitties below are hers too!

Of course Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there, including those fur baby mothers! 
Today I'm posting lovely water views, critters for 
and finish a sentence! Just to be silly.

and I'm toying with the game- finish this sentence. Alexa plays this game too, if you're lucky to have her in your house!

"Let yourself go. 
Pull out from the depths
those thoughts that you do not understand,
and spread them out in the sunlight
and know the meaning of them."
E M. Forster

How about a walk down to the lake 
where spring is advancing all around?

"From far, from eve and morning,
And yon twelve-winded sky,
This stuff of life to knit me
Blew hither: here am I."
E. M. Forster

Doesn't twelve-winded sky give you pause for thought?

Us again! From our cat-patio. 
Lounging, hearing bugs but can't reach them. 

"From high, from full sun shining
and yon a cloudless sky
the stuff of life around me
from my cat-patio, here I am.
Alive yon fresh-air and sun shining."

A little library by the water.

Libraries store energy that fuels the imagination.
They open up windows to the world
and inspire us to explore and achieve 
and contribute to improving our quality of life.
Libraries change lives for the better.

Sidney Sheldon

On days like this, you gain.

Not my boat, but the name belongs to a beloved pup.

Our Lady, remains inside my heart for our dear pup we were graced by her for sixteen wonderful years, and we shall never forget her.

Gifts are all around us.
Feeling them.

Having wasted previous wishes. 
- lesson learned!

Adrift in chasms of my thoughts - 
 stop overthinking.

Always remember to be hopeful and curious
and that as you move about your day there is so
much to be thankful for. Everything has purpose,
and because of this glorious day you'll desire more!

Thank you so much for stopping by
I hope you're all having that glorious day
take good care of you.

Happy Mother's Day to you, I like to include the a happy day to the fur-baby mommas too. The lake and sky images are beautiful. The cat-patio is cool, it is nice they can be outside and safe too. Sweet doggies, I still miss my Goldie Girl. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post. Enjoy your day and weekend. Have a great new week ahead.

Loving your photos and your philosophy.
And yes, there are animals who have a permanent home in my heart.
Like you, I worry about the rush to kick start the economy. I do hope it doesn't come back and bite us.
Stay well, stay safe, revell in the beauty around you and Happy Mother's Day.

I am standing and applauding! [and stealing your quotes!]

I want to be out on that lake sailing. Great shots and quotes.

Alexia said...

What beautiful photos! And thank you for all of your wise words - one that definitely applies to me is "stop overthinking"!

I feel nervous about launching back into "normal" too. Fingers crossed!

"One day or day one. You decide."

I had to think about this one. It's powerful!
